About the Author: My story has taken me many places. Wife, Mother of Four, Wife of 911 Responder, Advanced Life Support First Responder, caretaker of elderly parents, Mom of a childhood cancer survivor, and in my personal journey, Lupus Warrior to Author. In 2010, I collapsed at work and the odyssey began. By 2012 I had two strokes losing some mobility, my ability to drive and what I think was the hardest blow–I lost my ability to comprehend the written work. The doctors told us to make final arrangements–numbers 3-6 months were bantered about. My wonderful occupational therapist through tears brought voice recognition software into my life. Blessedly, my mouth still worked. A personal diary was my first foray. And then when I couldn’t deal with another episode of_______. You fill in the blank. I started to tell a story. Secure Desire-A Chase Group Story is a result of those efforts. Secure Again is the next entry in the series. And if you and my doctors have figured out–you can exist past your expiration date.
